Wild flowers and wild things...


Wild flowers and wild things...

Wild thing...you make my heart sing...
You make everything
Groovy
I said wild thing...

Wild thing, I think I love you
But I wanna know for sure
Come on, hold me tight
I love you

Wild thing...you make my heart sing...
You make everything
Groovy
I said wild thing...

Wild thing, I think you move me
But I wanna know for sure
So come on, hold me tight
You move me.

"The Troggs"

The lyrics of the above song epitomises the time period when this song was released and became popular. I was a youth of that period when we rebelled against society as it was then in varying degrees. We no longer just accepted what we were told; we went out there and discovered for ourselves. Of course we broke many of society's taboos whether we lived in Wellington, London, New York or San Francisco.

Just like the Rap music of today, Rock and Roll was something new, loud and brash - the music of the devil some would claim. So we influenced change in a straight-laced society that would never be the same. Wild flowers and wild things...you made our heart sing.

Thanks for getting that great song in my head - love it (and love the flowers...)! I hope people always continue to question and discover in that way.

Uh-oh you give your age away...ok, only to those of us who listened to that song of our youth as well. Nicely done!

I don't mind revealing my age, because I have been there and done that. The 1960's are so long ago, and I miss them for their innocence
and social change.
